The Oracle of Omaha convenes Capitalist Woodstock this weekend and the WSJ (click on this post title for link) has a brief but interesting feature on one Mr. Charlie Munger, RHM Extraordinaire, who, some say, is the brains at least equal behind the success of Berkshire Hathaway.
You can get a good view into ol' Charlie's vibe by checking out the book Poor Charlie's Almanack. Sit down with a nice Dairy Queen treat and enjoy.
And while on the subject, mosey on over to the Berkshire Hathaway web site http://www.berkshirehathaway.com/ where you can peruse all things Berkshire, including Mr. Buffet's famous letters to shareholders. Fascinating.
Oh, but to be in charge when 11.5 BILLION DOLLARS are clipped off an investment's values, maintain my Oracle status (not to mention my job) and remain so rich that the deep seeded, psychological, never acknowledged guilt/shame of uber-wealth turns you into a Lefty. A Capitalist Lefty, but a Lefty.
